A bunch of big boats are racing across the Atlantic from Newport, Rhode Island to the southern tip of Wales.
Here is a link to a cool website that tracks the boats in the race.
It’s kind of fun to play with the sliders for playback and playback speed.
Look for the lead boat in the race (The white one). There’s a reason it’s in the lead. It’s a Herreshoff design that is 125 feet long. When I checked earlier today it was doing 14.2 knots. The boat’s name is Mariette of 1915. The next boat in size seems to be around 53 feet.
I’ve put a link to the boat’s website under the name, but there are a lot of great images of it if you just enter the name in Google and select the “Images” option.
